We are so grateful to our many volunteers for the dedication of their time and talents to helping The Mediation Center in our mission to transform conflict into opportunity in communities across Western North Carolina. 

Volunteer Opportunities

An upcoming volunteer mediator training will take place online between January 12th to February 5th of 2021. For more information, see this complete Volunteer Mediator description and training details document.  Within this document, you will find a link to the application.  The deadlin has been extended to Friday, January 8. 

For Groups **Please note: Group volunteering is on hold due to COVID-19***

Our Family Visitation Program routinely welcomes groups of  volunteers to sanitize our visitation rooms, including all of our children’s games and toys. This helps to keep our supervised visitation program clean, healthy, and safe for the parents and children who use these services.

We may occasionally have additional volunteer opportunities for groups that are not listed above. For more information about how your group might be able to serve our organization, get in touch below!

For Individuals

More than 30 Volunteer Community Mediators are at the heart of The Mediation Center’s work, and each year we welcome new volunteers into their ranks. All Volunteer Community Mediators have completed the Mediation Center’s 40 hour Community Mediation Training which is provided at no cost to those accepted into the program.  We generally offer the training about once a year, most recently in early October 2020.  If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Community Mediator, click here: Information for Prospective Volunteer Mediators.  

Do you have another skill or talent that you believe could help The Mediation Center accomplish its mission? We welcome hearing from you about ways that you could serve our organizational mission. E-mail us at info@mediatewnc.org to tell us about your skills and availability or how you envision volunteering at The Mediation Center. 


We accept interns for the fall, spring, and summer semesters. 

You must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at an accredited college or university and be completing the internship for course credit. 

To apply, please e-mail your resume, cover letter, and information about the requirements of your program to Corey Hinson, Program Manager at coreyh@mediatewnc.org. Please apply as early as possible; our internship spots often fill up several months in advance.
